Dusty Miller

Dusty miller is a favorite because it looks good with everything. The silvery-white color is a great foil for any type of garden blossom and the fine-textured foliage creates a beautiful contrast against other plants’ green foliage. Dusty miller is easy to grow, it is also very heat and drought tolerant.

Dusty millers prefer full sun and ordinary, well-drained soil, though they will grow in lightly shaded areas, too, brightening them with their silver color. Set plants into the garden when the soil has warmed and after the danger of frost has passed. Space eight to ten inches apart.
